When Mickey’s crazy step-son Leon is killed in a construction ‘accident’, nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay.
User Reviews: If you do invest yourself into the story aspect of it and only see this as one story, than you misjudge what the filmmakers intended to do (at least the way I saw it). And it’s always interesting to read other peoples view on things that we see differently. This is not about a death, as it is about life. As it is about marriage, as it is about incidents and just pure luck or misfortune.
Hoffman might not be among us anymore, but even in this movie he reminds us, how great he is. Also Torturo can act, whatever Michael Bay tries to do with him. This really is about things happening and spiraling out of control (literally in quite a few cases) and the outcome of "lies". If you do dig the way the movie goes, you’ll really enjoy this
